Installation view of the exhibition James Welling, at David Zwirner in New York, dated 2007.

James Welling

Opening on March 21, 2007, David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new photographs by Los Angeles-based artist James Welling. In 2006, Welling was included in group exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; Museu de Serralves, Porto, Portugal; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; the Chelsea Art Museum, New York, NY; and P.S.1, Long Island City, NY. His exhibition Agricultural Works, a project sponsored by Minetta Brook, was recently exhibited at the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY (2006). The exhibition James Welling–Flowers, 2005 is on display at The Horticultural Society of New York at 148 W. 37th Street, 13th Floor, from March 23 through June 22, 2007.

This will be Welling's second solo exhibition at David Zwirner and will include selections from three recent bodies of work: Flowers, Hexachromes, and Authors. For the past 5 years, James Welling has explored the phenomena of color: its material presence as layers of dyes on a sheet of photo paper; its perceptual existence in the eyes of the viewer; and its symbolic place in both personal and historical contexts. This exhibition documents Welling's most recent investigation of color.
